This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
SNR Denton’s UK LLP has made up three partners in its annual round of promotions.
Dispute resolution lawyer Sam Coulthard and real estate lawyer Simon Masri were both made up from the firm’s London office while Dan Kidd, who also focuses on real estate, was made up from SNR Denton’s Milton Keynes office.
The number is down from last year, when the firm made up eight new partners across its EMEA offices.
In a statement, the firm’s EMEA chief executive Matthew Jones said: “We congratulate our new partners on their promotion and appointment. They will play a critical role in our focus on profitable growth over the coming year and demonstrate our ability to attract and retain talented lawyers. The combination that created SNR Denton in 2010 is clearly attracting new clients that would not have used the firm without our sector, service and geographical spread. Our new partners will capitalise on this and help strengthen our commitment to better serving our clients and increasing our market share.”
The news comes after the US arm of SNR Denton made up 17 new partners, as well as appointing two counsel and two principals.
